We have some good news for those of you who have been getting increasingly frustrated with the rather annoying zombie scientist which steals your guns during Zombie Mode on Black Ops.
As you are probably aware, the zombie scientist, or ‘Pentagon Thief’ as he is more commonly known appears after five rounds (approx.) of play on the second zombie map, called ‘Five’.
If you have already experienced this, you’ll know that it is incredibly hard to kill him before he steals your guns, so you’ll be pleased to know that a new glitch has been discovered which will make the process a lot more easier for you.
First of all, let us point out that you MUST have the Quick Revive perk to get this to work. After that, players will need to wait until the change in music starts for the pentagon thief, and then run up to the elevator on the middle floor, waiting for the scientist to arrive. Once he does appear, you need to cook a grenade and kill yourself. After you go down, shoot him and he should die in one shot – if done correctly.
It seems a bit crazy doesnt it? There is a video which we’ve found which proves that this method works (skip to 3.45). Once you have killed him without him stealing your guns, you’ll get the ‘Hands off the Merchandise’ trophy, and also a unique powerup which will allow you to transport to the Pack-A-Punch room and upgrade a gun for only $1000 – pretty sweet.
Try this little trick out for yourself and let us know if it works for you. If you have any problems getting this to work, leave us a comment below.
